They have also been heavily influenced by electronic music. Yorke released a solo project called 'The Eraser' in 2006 mainly consisting of electronic production techniques.
Yorke has been heavily influenced by electronic music throughout his career. He used to DJ in college and also played a boiler room set back in 2012. Yorke is clearly not honed his skills in a while and his beat matching skills were average at best but it goes to show his respect and admiration for the culture.
In an interview with dazed digital he was asked who his biggest influence was and he had this to say about
"I would still say old Richard D James. He burns a heavy shadow. I used to have this big hang-up when I used to DJ at college, and the most exciting thing that used to happen was when a new Warp record came out. That’s what I used to DJ, and the Sound System would come alive. Aphex Twin opened up another world that didn’t involve my fucking electric guitar, and I was just so jealous of that whole crew. They were off on their own planet. I hated all the music that was around Radiohead at the time, it was completely fucking meaningless. I hated the Britpop thing and what was happening in America, but Aphex Twin was totally beautiful, and he’s kind of my age too. He’s a massive influence."
In a later interview he informed that guardian that Blair's team; "Wanted pre-meetings. They wanted to know that I was on-side. Also, I was being manoeuvred into a position where if I said the wrong thing post-the meeting, Friends of the Earth would lose their access. Which normally would be called blackmail."
